Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has made a formal commitment for eradicating the visa needs for the citizens of Mexico who enter Canada. It is the policy which was inflicted by conservative government in the year 2009 to curtail the flow of Mexicans seeking shelter here.
Mexican President, Enrique Pena Nieto, told that Trudeau has confirmed during his meeting with the new Prime Minister of Canada.
According to the statement from the Prime Minister’s office, Trudeau had discussed the joint issues with Pena Nieto and repeated the platform commitment for removing the visa needs on citizens from Mexico.
The need had become the irritant issue between the two nations and according to the Communications deputy director, Olivier Duchesneau, he is not sure as when the people from Mexico will be able to travel to Canada without holding a visa. He also told that the PM has already instructed his cabinet members to progress ahead with the change.
Prime Minister Trudeau had instructed the Minister for Foreign Affairs Stephane Dion in an authorization letter which was made public previous Friday for lifting the visa need for people of Mexico.
According to the new PM, he expects Dion to work with his cabinet colleagues for strengthening the trilateral cooperation of North American with the Mexico and the US.
According to the Trudeau’s consent letter, top priority for Dion is to support the immigration minister and citizenship in lifting the visa need for Mexicans.
Another top priority is to work with the ministers like environment and Foreign Trade for preparing for leader of North America Summit in Canada.
According to the Mexican President, both the leaders discussed about the trilateral yearly summit between the PM of Canada, the US and the President of Mexico which Canada was ready to host by the end of the year.
